[f_minor] Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould

Hi all

I can confirm that 32 will see a european release, the movie is now available for preorder at Amazon Germany:


Release date is April 13th, price is 16 Euros.

One aspect that irritates me is the aspect ratio. Let us hope these specs are incorrect. 4:3 or 1.33:1 are outdated really and might look quite ugly on newer TV sets and it would be a crying shame if a “critically acclaimed cult movie” would be released without visual and sonic updates adjusted to the 21st Century.

Hi all
I was able to track down the press blurb on the swiss site of Sony Music:

Unfortunetly GoogleBing does not allow me to find this DVD in the context of sonymusic.com but you will get the idea.

This means 2 things: If it is on the swiss site, then there must be a european release as well (Code 2) which gives me the opportunity to say YAY ! European DVD premiere after whatsmany years !
(But if this should end up as another import without extras then I think I will be very cross and dissapointed)

The scan on the site of Amazon is incorrect, the new cover looks closer to the CBC box set. I wonder what is on that re-release and hope they added a few extras and improved image quality. That low US price makes one susupcious however and Sony CH doesn’t cough up a local price for a comparison yet.

Since 32 was rarely shown on TV and the subsequent DVD release was sold for prices close to a bank bailout, I urge those of you who never had a chance to see 32 to get a copy now.

Despite its age it is still worth watching and while it may have its flaws 32 is much more enjoyable than some of the recent releases about GG if I may add my grain of salt here.

Mark, I think the subject floated by a few weeks ago, but it's always good to have reminders. :) Thanks for the heads up!
